DCW inspects Dixit's Rohini ashram again
New Delhi: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Monday once again inspected the ashram run by self-styled godman Virender Dev Dixit in Rohini.
DCW chief Swati Jai Hind said that four new rooms were found at the ashram.
Talking to Millennium Post, Jai Hind said that she suspects that many items might be taken away from the ashram after the Commission's first raid.
"The place is totally confusing. We found four more rooms at the ashram, which were not seen during the first raid. Nothing was found in them. It might be possible that some suspicious things were kept in the room and later taken away," said the DCW chief, adding that Dixit should be arrested.
On her Twitter handle, Jai Hind wrote on Monday, "Visited Baba Virender Dixit Ashram with CBI, CFSL & CPWD today. Pointed cage like structures, places where women & girls were living in animal like condition & place from where we confiscated sexually explicit letters, medicines. Support CBI investigation. Baba shud b arrested!"
In her another tweet, she stated, "Look at their guts! Despite High Court order, Baba Virender Dixit ashram continues to be called 'Adhyatmik Vishwavidyalaya'. They have no respect for High Court and law!"
During its first raid at the Rohini ashram in December 2017, the Commission had reportedly rescued 41 girls, with Jai Hind saying that the condition of the ashram "was very dangerous and pathetic."
A few days later, another, much smaller, ashram run by Dixit in Dwarka was found, where the conditions were found to be prison-like, where girls and women were locked behind closed doors.
The DCW chief added that stacks of medicines were found and no records were maintained about where the girls had come from and how long they had been staying.
When inquired about their condition, many of the rescued girls gave evasive replies. DCW also suspects that Dixit, the chief of Adhyatmik Vishwavidyalaya, might be involved in a human trafficking racket, functioning in Delhi and other parts of the country.
